UPDATED: DEC 18, 2015 The beer pours a soft almond colored foam, which collapses extremely fast. Only a little bit of foam forms, and a minimal bit of foam remains on top of the bear. The color of the beer is dark amber. The beer is nice and clear, very clear. The smell is nice, but very mild. Almost like water was aded to the beer, which is odd, because it came in the bottle (without the cap though). The smell has a little almond and some hops in it. The beer has the typical Leffe aroma, like all Leffe beers. This makes the smell somehow familiar, which is nice. The taste is better. I taste lemons, and a tiny bitter smoke flavor, together with some hops.The beer has a nice bitterness, balanced perfectly by the sweetness. There is also the typical Leffe flavor. The flavor is not strong enough though, it is not as good as aspects. It is not as fruity, sweet, spicy and warming as I aspect from a Christmas ale. A little disappointing, a pity. turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2012
Pours dark copper with light copper coloured head. Malty aroma. Fairly hoppy, full-bodied flavour. Pleasant christmas beer; good with food. artyom (1112) - Osijek, CROATIA - JUL 9, 2016
0.33l bottle. Dark brown color with lasting white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, fruity, chocolate and spicy. Taste is malty with light to medium bitterness. Medium to full body. Overall it’s good beer, but it lacks complexity of Belgian ale. screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2010

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick brown and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a spicy touch . This beer smells to fruit.

Poured dark brown/amber with an off-white head. Some roasted malts and some hoppy bitterness. Nice beer, but not enough depth. ralphdot (1094) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2011

I guess I expected too much from a Leffe Christmas beer. It didn’t quite deliver. mutz (1073) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2011
Roodbruin van kleur met een flinke kraag die na het inschenken nog een tijdje blijft hangen. Ziet er goed uit en smaakt ook OK. Fris en doordrinkbaar, lichtzoet en een beetje bruin broodachtig, niet veel body maar toch niet waterig. Lekker om er een paar achterover te gooien bij de chips ofzo.
